What are the new soybean herbicide traits and how do they compare?

Without any new herbicide (site of action) in the pipeline, combined with the development of weed resistance to multiple herbicide site of actions, soybean growers are asking many questions about new herbicide resistance traits that could be making their debut during the 2016 growing season.

Many are asking questions about approval status as well as herbicide restrictions. We have started to gather information about each of these new herbicide resistant traits and have compared them in a chart to help growers learn about each new soybean system technology. 

These new herbicide traits will become very important in the future, because the rotation of each of these traits or herbicide site of actions not only within the growing season, but also in different years, will allow growers to fight back against weed resistance. Hopefully, growers will learn from past mistakes and not only rely on a single herbicide resistant trait for weed control.
